Fabric Covered Shoes

I don't normally do an end of month recap but I think I like the idea. I did manage to finally get everything moved, got the old house rented and am now all settled into wedded bliss. Of course my new husband moved the majority of my things so other than most of my sewing stuff and my clothes, I don't know where anything is! On the sewing front, I worked on pant fitting and sewed 5 pairs of slacks with only one being a wadder. I also sewed one jacket, and two blouses, but best of all I covered a pair of shoes with fabric! I've had the idea in my head for quite some time but never got around to trying it. What do you think? Drop me a line and let me know! I absolutely love them.

  2. Those are beautiful!! I saw an article in a Threads magazine a few months ago about covering your shoes in fabric, but I think your results look nicer. What did you use to give them that great shine?

  8. Opps....forgot to say...

    WOW...you have been very busy...my goodness I wish I was getting done all that you have gotten done!!! I've been hung up on a home dec. project which is "FINALLY" done and am now working on some holiday decorations and pillows for my daughter. I am hoping to get to some "real" sewing soon.

  12. I really like this. I have a question about it. Do you think it would be possible to do this with a sequined or weird fabric like that? My 3-year-old just outgrew her favorite ruby slippers and I'd love to make her a pair that fits.
